This is a cabinet card photograph of a dog perched upon a tree stump. The caption in the image reads, “SHEP MASCOT M. 7 CAV, FT. OGLETHORPE.” The image measures approximately 5 ½” x 4” centered on a 7” x 5 ¾” mount. Clear image with good contrast.

At the end of the 19th century, the 7th Cavalry Regiment was active in the New Mexico and Arizona area until 1902 when it was redeployed to the Chickamauga National Park in Georgia. That post was dedicated December 27, 1904 and named “Fort Oglethorpe” for the founder of the Georgia colony, James Oglethorpe. It was used as camp of instruction and maneuvers for regular army and national guard troops in 1906, 1908 and 1910. It served as the home of the 3rd, 7th, 10, 11th and 12th Cavalry prior to World War I.    [jet]
